Final Rating: 4.8/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a 375mL bottle into a Side Project long stemmed tulip (wine?) glass. Acquired in a trade.
Pours a lightly hazy, sunny yellow body with a 2 finger white, frothy head that sticks around for quite a while, leaving a good amount of lacing and retention. Looks really nice.
Aromas are potent and forward – they filled my kitchen upon uncapping this beer. The aromas that come off this beer are absolutely stunning. This is how a wood aged fruited sour should smell, period. Heavy funk and hay, TONS of overripe stone fruit, like you left some peaches out in the sun for a while, definitely tartness going on here, I can’t wait to sip it.
Beautifully complex stone fruit, sour candy, funky yeast, pretty strong sourness, oak, champagne, musty basement, more woodyness on the finish, leaves a puckering sour apple aftertaste, quite dry. Mouthfeel is light, refreshing, effervescent, crisp.
One of the best, if not the best beer I’ve had this year, and one of the best sours I’ve ever tasted. All around this is magnificent and world class. Would recommend.
